We'll just keep the cameras rolling..
Outtakes of great ephemeral films are always a treat to come by, as with the amazing reel from "Date With Your Family". Here we have an HOUR of outtakes made from that bizarre little masterpiece in Skip's collection called "Sudden Birth". This doesn't REALLY add anything to the film, there's a few miscellaneous shots you haven't seen, a close up of a plastic syringe, a drawing here and there, the doctor with or without his hat, different angles etc. There are two things I liked though, a) the clapper lady and her fur coat (and when the light exploded!) and B) the pregnant lady seemed to have more medical attention than previously alluded to in the film (she appears to get an anaesthetic). But yeah, there's multitudes of the shots of everyone waiting for that woman to pop it out.
